How to Make Paper Flower Wreath
Step 1: Making Paper Leaves and Gathering the Flowers
Trace and cut out the leaf patterns from green-colored craft papers. You may follow this tutorial on making paper leaves. Prepare the wreath base from cardstock paper or simply use a store-bought one. Place the base on a flat surface and gather all the paper flowers and leaves.
Step 2: Attaching Flowers on the Base
Apply glue on the backside of the flowers and stick them on the base. Arrange the flowers nicely on the base, try to fill the base with the paper flowers as much as possible.
Step 3: Filling the Gaps with Leaves
Done attaching the flowers on the base? Now stick leaves to fill any gap between the flowers. Add as many paper leaves as you want, it’s a summer craft after all!
Once the wreath is complete, attach a hanging mechanism on the backside to complete the wreath and hang it on a wall!
